That makes sense. 

The part I’m still unsure on is, when it falls off the reg, there isn’t an immediate drop in power. At least, not a noticeable one. You could be shooting at 915 on the reg and still be above 900 for a number of shots off the reg. In this scenario, lowering the reg would give you more shots on the reg but at a lower power. 

If I follow what what you said correctly, you’re saying that there is no way to get more shots on the reg at the same power but it can be tuned for more shots at a slightly lower (but still more than ample) power level. 

Would someone with an Impact be willing to conduct a short experiment in the name of Science? The experiment would be to shoot a string from a full charge, recording the speed and reg setting. When it falls off the reg, the reg setting would be lowered so it’s back on the reg and the other power settings would then be increased to see if same or similar power can be achieved for additional regulated shots.
